During this workshop, participants will discuss and unpack the structural limitations and advantages that coincide with various intersecting identities. Participants will be required to select an identity/character that differs from their own, removing much of the angst that inevitably plagues conversations regarding inequality. Session attendees will be engaged in a conversation via board game that includes but is not limited to: racial, ethnic, gender, faith, and sexual orientation discrimination, privilege, gender and racial pay gaps, redlining and gentrification, median income averages by race and gender, class, (mental) health disparities, prison and bail disparities, ableism, education inequity, and intersectionality. A thorough examination of Census, Bureau of Labor Statistics, NAACP, and other credible data sources was conducted to capture the past and present obstacles that have kept marginalized groups, marginalized. FACTUALITY is a board game, and board games are notoriously engaging, which makes its inclusive cultural competency component, uniquely digestible.
